Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp has
confirmed that experienced goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune could return sometime in
Khune has been out of action since last December after
suffering a serious shoulder injury during a training ground collision with
enforcer Willard Katsande.
The 32-year-old did not feature in the opening day win over
Highlands Park on Sunday as Middendorp fielded Bruce Bvuma instead.
Nonetheless, the club's undisputed number one could return
later this month meaning he could be set to face the likes of SuperSport United
and Cape Town City.
The German told the team's official website: "He is
getting closer and closer, we are working on getting him ready before the end
of the current month."
Khune will either return against SuperSport United on August
24 or get a feel of Absa Premiership action in a midweek tie with Cape Town
City FC three days later on August 27.
The Glamour Boys next face Black Leopards on Saturday night
at Moses Mabhida Stadium with a kick-off time of 20:15.
